What is the difference between mobile and web app testing?

Testing a system application, such as a company network. is a very different than testing a mobile application that could reach thousands, if not millions, of customers. Testing a mobile application also means applying testing procedures to many contours and configurations, and consequently requires different testing methods. Consequently, QA teams are met with divergent challenges from a company intranet to “Pokémon Go”.
